Ein ungewöhnliches Quartett
Dark - Candice Fox Dark - Candice Fox

Los Angeles: Früher war Blair Harbour eine Kinderchirurgin. Nun wurde sie gerade nach ihrer Verurteilung als Mörderin nach zehn Jahren aus dem Gefängnis entlassen und schon bittet ihre ehemalige Zellengenossin Emily Lawlor, genannt Sneak, sie um Hilfe. Dayly, die Tochter der Diebin, ist verschwunden. In ihrer Not wenden sich die beiden Frauen an eine Polizistin, Detective Jessica Sanchez. Dann schließt sich auch die Gangsterin Ada Maverick der Gruppe an. Der Fall nimmt immer größere Ausmaße an. Derweil sitzt ein Bankräuber und Mörder in der Todeszelle und zieht die Fäden...

 

„Dark“ ist ein Thriller von Candice Fox.

 

Meine Meinung:

Der Thriller besteht aus etlichen Kapiteln mit einer angenehmen Länge. Erzählt wird abwechselnd: aus der Sicht von Blair in der Ich-Perspektive und aus der Sicht von Jessica. Eingefügt sind außerdem Briefe, die zwischen Dayly und dem Kriminellen John Fishwick ausgetauscht werden. Dieser Aufbau funktioniert gut.

 

Der Schreibstil ist schnörkellos, aber klar und anschaulich. Die Sprache ist weitestgehend recht umgangssprachlich, zum Teil sogar vulgär.

 

Wie schon in der „Crimson Lake“-Reihe stehen etwas ungewöhnliche Charaktere im Vordergrund. Die vier sehr unterschiedlichen Protagonistinnen wirken ein wenig überzogen, sind aber interessant angelegt und machen die Geschichte unterhaltsam.

 

Auf fast 400 Seiten bleibt der Thriller spannend und kurzweilig. Das liegt unter anderem an überraschenden Wendungen und kreativen Einfällen. Immer blitzt auch der spezielle Humor hervor, den man bereits aus anderen Büchern der Autorin kennt. Leider ist die Geschichte an einigen Stellen für meinen Geschmack jedoch eine Spur zu brutal geraten.

 

Das düstere, stimmungsvolle Cover ist an die Originalausgabe angelehnt, was mir grundsätzlich gut gefällt. Auch der deutsche Titel ähnelt der englischsprachigen Version („Gathering Dark“), die präziser und damit treffender formuliert ist.

 

Mein Fazit:

Mit „Dark“ legt Candice Fox wieder einmal einen fesselnden Thriller mit besonderen Charakteren vor, der unterhaltsame Lesestunden bietet. Anders als die drei Teile der „Crimson Lake“-Reihe konnte mich die Geschichte aber nicht in Gänze begeistern.

The Dark Prohecy
The Dark Prophecy - Rick Riordan

Vague spoilers for all Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus/Trials of Apollo that I've read so far.

tl;dr: the books are long but nothing is happening in them (or maybe I'm just not interested in the action? That's very possible).

Book Review - The Gritty Truth by Melissa Foster
The Gritty Truth (The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor Book 7) - Melissa Foster
This was such a beautiful, and phenomenal story.  I enjoyed many moments smiling, laughing, melting with the heat, but Melissa absolutely broke me emotionally on more than one occasion with this. She took the wind out of my sails with the most emotion I've ever felt whilst reading a book. 
 
Quincy has held a special place in my heart ever since meeting him and Tru in their traumatic story of Tru Blue. I thought I was prepared to relive his heartbreaking past and ready to take on whatever was going to come along but my heart felt like it had actually broke as I read certain scenes. This is now firmly planted forever as my #1 Top Melissa Foster read!  It can definitely be read as a standalone but I feel that there is a special connection to the characters that seeds from Tru Blue that brings even more feelings to this book.
 
I always love my time in the Whiskey world, it's always fun, people genuinely care about each other, no judgements are made and are everyone is so supportive, which is what Quincy, a recovering drug addict, needed more than most. He was in his second drug free year and doing really well, he had turned into such a genuine, caring and thoughtful guy, and he was falling hard for sexy dance teacher Roni, who also had her own traumatic history.  As we follow their story the author brings the beautiful excitement of fresh love to the pages, the giddiness, stolen glances, the innocence of kissing, drifting you back in time and bringing a smile to your face.
 
They have the ultimate connection and chemistry, but as things start to progress Quincy finds that he can not allow the relationship to strengthen until he has been totally honest with Roni about his past, even if it means delving into his mistakes he regrets on a daily basis and the possibility of losing Roni completely by scaring her off.  As you read, you could feel the sheer anguish, pain, and sadness, running off the pages, whilst remembering to tell yourself to breathe. It ripped my heart out listening to Quincy retell his heartbreaking and unthinkable past.  And even though we love Quincy now, imagining how Roni must have felt not knowing what to do with all this painful story.  She could be taking the biggest risk of her life.  It definitely makes you think about your own thoughts and how would you deal with the biggest decision of your life. What will Roni decide? And what will happen next?
 
After finishing the book I was an emotional wreck, it left me speechless with emotion as I sat thinking...I just...I can't...I just...I felt like I'd taken all the emotion I could.  I found myself writing to the author to try to express just an ounce of how I was feeling...
 
"I feel like an absolute wreck, I don’t think I could have take much more emotion, can’t get the words out, but phenomenal and beautiful is all I can say. I actually feel like my heart has broke. Thank you for being such an amazing writer xxx"
 
Phenomenal #1 Melissa Foster read!
